Walnut Midcentury Side Table For Sale on 1stDibs

With a vast inventory of beautiful furniture at 1stDibs, we’ve got just the walnut midcentury side table you’re looking for. Each walnut midcentury side table for sale was constructed with extraordinary care, often using wood, walnut and metal. You’ve searched high and low for the perfect walnut midcentury side table — we have versions that date back to the 19th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 20th Century are available. A walnut midcentury side table made by Mid-Century Modern designers — as well as those associated with Art Deco — is very popular. You’ll likely find more than one walnut midcentury side table that is appealing in its simplicity, but Lane Furniture, Baker Furniture Company and Arthur Umanoff produced versions that are worth a look.

How Much is a Walnut Midcentury Side Table?

The average selling price for a walnut midcentury side table at 1stDibs is $1,500, while they’re typically $350 on the low end and $14,500 for the highest priced.

Finding the Right Side Tables for You

While the range of styles and variety of materials have broadened over time, the priceless functionality of side tables has held true.

Side tables are an integral accent to our seating and provide additional, necessary storage in our homes. They can be a great foundation for that perfect focal piece of art that you want all your guests to see as you congregate for cocktails in the living room. Side tables are indeed ideal as a stage for your decorative objects or plants in your library or your study, and they are a practical space for the novel or stack of design magazines you keep close to your sofa.

Sure, owning a pair of side tables isn’t as imperative as having a coffee table in the common area, though most of us would struggle without them. Those made of metal, stone or wood are frequently featured in stylish interiors, and if you’re shopping for antique, new or vintage side tables, there are a couple of things to keep in mind.

With respect to the height of your side tables, a table that is as high as your lounge chair or the arm of your couch is best. Some folks are understandably fussy about coherence in a living-room area, but coherence doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t mix and match. Feel free to introduce minimalist mid-century modern wooden side tables designed by Paul McCobb alongside your contemporary metal coffee table. If you think it isn’t possible to pair a Hollywood Regency–style side table with a contemporary sofa, we’re here to tell you that it is. Even a leggy side table can balance a chunky sofa well. Try to keep a limited color palette in mind if you’re planning on mixing furniture styles and materials, and don’t be afraid to add a piece of abstract art to shake things up.

As far as the objects you’re planning to place on your side tables, if you have heavy items such as stone or sculptures to display, a fragile glass-top table would not be an ideal choice. Think about what material would best support your collectibles and go with that. If it’s a particularly small side table, along with a tall, sleek floor lamp, it can make for a great way to fill a corner of the room you wouldn’t otherwise easily be able to populate.

Whether you are looking for an antique 19th-century carved oak side table or a vintage rattan side table (because rattan never went away!), the collection on 1stDibs has you covered.
